Mk2 Coupe Fuel Tank Removal

Recommended Posts

heyholly__

Hi all,

 

Has anyone ever removed the fuel tank from a Mk2 Coupe? Mine has a leak so was just wondering how easy (or difficult!) it is.

 

Any help would be appreciated :)

 

Thanks!

Get the back end of the car up as far as possible and it's a pain in the arse, but certainly doable. Some people loosen or drop the offside rear axle mount. 

 

Pattern tanks often have the fuel filler neck a bit out of shape, about the only way I've found to adjust it is to slide a broom handle down and pull it into line. 

 

Tanks on 82-84 cars are smaller, and hard to find.

Remove drivers rear wheel to get the neck in and out

Cheers! I have access to a ramp which should hopefully make this all a bit easier.

 

Any idea which bolts need to be removed? We've tried before by taking the tank strap off but couldn't seem to move it more than a few inches which is less than ideal when we want to completely remove it...
